Christopher Hitchens - Gone with the wind
« Topic Start: December 16, 2011, 06:47:47 AM »
It is with much sadness that I announce the passing of irreverent gadfly of religion and Vanity Fair contributor Christopher Hitchens at the age of 62 as a result of esophagus cancer.  If you haven't read "God Is Not Great" you're missing out.

i always enjoyed listening to him and reading his articles, he wrote long enough to probably have pissed everyone off at him at one time or another.  RIP.

"  .... wrote long enough to probably have pissed everyone off at him at one time or another."      That's my goal.    My son gave me a MC helmet sticker  ...   "Places to go.  People to piss off."
He always added spice to the discussion.

Hitchens could troll with the best of them but the man had brains.  Just a sad day.
